Seeking advice on serging burlap stockings. I've read so much conflicting information on it. I tried a three thread stitch and it just kept falling apart. I'm wondering if I should give up and just sew it but I don't want that mess in my expensive machines. The burlap I got both at hobby lobby and Joanns are loose weaves.



Thanks,


Hugs,

Ha, ha that changes things and I know what you are talking about with auto correct. Sorry as far as the serger is concerned I can not help.

Thanks for the editing tip. It's not letting me do it on my iPad. I will play a little more to try

I am not sure what you mean with "serving" burlap stocking. If you meant sewing I still am not sure what the problem is. I have embroidered as well as sewed with burlap,but I had stabilizer between. Maybe a little more detail would help.
